Slow Cooker Rhubarb Crumble

I’m a fan of crumbles. Apple crumble is my go-to, as apples are always readily available here, and it’s a great way to use up those apples I was never going to eat raw anyway. I’m also a fan of rhubarb, but sadly rhubarb is only available during the early days of summer. And even…

Apple Pie Filling

I bought apples the other day. Lots and lots of them. Many more than I could eat in a short time, but they were cheap. And they looked good. And of course there are ways to make sure your apples won’t go to pot. So I made applesauce. And apple pie filling. That took care…

Raw Applesauce

I love homemade applesauce. It’s sweet, smells great, has a lovely colour and is versatile. You can just eat it plain, use it in a smoothie, or – as I did today – use it in your baking. Here’s the story. I wanted to make brownies. The recipe I was using included jam, which I…

Gluten Free Flour Blend

It’s easy and convenient to make your own gluten free flour blend. That, and it gives you total control over what goes into it. It might be cheaper too, though I can’t be sure of that. I never bought a gluten free flour blend, just a ton of different gluten free flours. They’re still all…

Sweet pea brownies

Happy Chocolate Tuesday! And yes, you read that right. Sweet pea brownies. It’s no typo. There’s sweet peas in these brownies. And you won’t even taste them. There’s also cherry jam in them. You will taste that. And you can totally eat them for breakfast. It’s what I did the other day. Now, did I…

Instant Pot Rice Pudding

Although this is really a dessert, I like to eat my rice pudding for breakfast. I make a nice big pot once a week, and store my rice pudding in a glass bottle in the fridge. It’s delicious either hot or cold. No Instant Pot? No worries. You can make it in an ordinary saucepan…

Boozy ABC pudding

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve surely heard of this weird, but utterly delicious and – dare I say it? – decadent pudding. In its simplest form, it consists of just three ingredients: avocado, banana and cocoa. That’s it. No added sugars or other sweeteners, no other dodgy ingredients. Just these three. But…

Apple Crumble

Simple, tasty and easy to make. One of my favourite desserts. Ingredients Directions Preheat oven to 180C/350F Toss apples with sugar, spices and liquid in a baking dish. Put flour, oats and sugar in a bowl. Slice in butter and rub it with your fingertips into the mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add more butter…
